Having established the PV cell performance characterization laboratory at NREL in 1980 and devoted more than three decades to photovoltaic science, Dr. Keith Emery of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will receive the William R. Cherry Award at IEEE PVSC.
The Cherry Award is named in honour of William R. Cherry, a founder of the photovoltaic community.
“Keith’s invaluable contributions to the science of photovoltaics have resulted in the development of critical measurement tools essential to the maturation of the industry,” said Dr. Ryne Raffaelle, Conference General Chair for the 39th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference. “This well-deserved award reflects the committee’s high esteem for Dr. Emery’s professional accomplishments and appreciation for all he has done to advance our field.”
The 39th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference will begin Monday, June 16.
